A litter of unusual kittens has been frolicking around Pets Lifeline this month – and these little grimalkins come with “more to love.”
Where most cats have 18 toes, five toes on their front paws and four on their back, some cats have a few extras, and they’re known as polydactyl cats.
Pets Lifeline currently has seven polydactyl kittens up for adoption, including one with 24 toes, as well as a passel of other adorable cats and dogs.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19, the community is invited to come to the center at 19686 Eighth St. E. to see the “polys” and to enter a contest to name the kittens. “In addition to these special orange and white kittens, we have three others polys ready for adoption,” said Pets Lifeline executive director Nancy King.
On that day all other cats and kittens will have their adoption fees waived per approved application. The poly naming contest winners will be announced at 3 p.m.
